Welcome to Day #3 of Chocolate and Salt Theme Week.

Today's Sassy 65% Dark Chocolate (bar) was from Maya/Maya'a Chocolates (Pinole, CA). 

Aroma and flavor notes included: bold, smooth fudge-y dark chocolate with diffuse red fruit (berry); balanced, (barely detectable) earth; and accented with sassy sparkles of sea salt.

Texture: bar broke with a hard snap, and had a creamy melt and texture 

What I liked about this bar: 1.) smooth yet flavorful dark chocolate with subtle complexity; and 2.) an attractive, complementary balance of dark chocolate and salt. (I like savory chocolate flavors.)

Ingredients: Unsweetened Chocolate, Cane Sugar, Cocoa, Butter (Milk), Soy Lecithin, Sea Salt

Allergen-related information: Contained milk (butter). May contain traces of tree nuts.
